will 50 degree temps hurt my plants tonight?

Due to unusually warm weather, I started my plants indoors and took them to the woods today because I just couldn't pass them off as heirloom tomato plants much longer.(family doesn't know) well, I got distracted and left them there outside by mistake. Weather supposed to go down to 50 degrees tonight. Should I sneak out of the house and get them? or will they be okay till tomorrow. They are still in solo cups and they have 6 sets of leaves......They are 15 miles from me and I have night blindness....so driving isn't easy, but I don't want to lose them ....advise please

thanks Ybogey, I have been supplementing with night lights. Was really winging it, not knowing what to do, I sort of jumped the gun this year because it was so warm. It is getting dark about 8:30. Dang! do , I have to suppliment at night till the summer soltace? I've got 30 more seedlings with various germ dates still getting pampered indoors. I had a plethora of seeds as one of my girls accidently got pollinated last year and so I have been free and easy with the seeds ,planning on experimenting a little with different locations

The last time that I went out of town, the batteries in my furnace thermostat died. The default setting is 50 degrees when this happens - I had some pretty chilly gals after somewhere from 1-10 days at that temperature, but they snapped right back.

With my last crop the temperature in my grow room stayed steady at 57-58 degrees throughout the entire flowering cycle, and there seemed to be no adverse effects.

The plants appeared to be just as happy as they would have been at 70-75 degrees.

My room gets down to around 50-60 during winter and it takes a few weeks longer to flower. Outdoor sees 40 on some nights and there's no problem, unless you're growing a haze or something very sativa.

I have no idea how much 50 degrees is, since I use celsius, but IME cold temps isn't that much of a problem, cannabisplants can easily withstand some frost at night. but they will grow a lot slower or not at all, but as soon as it gets warmer again they'll take off

just cause the plant SURVIVES.... cold temps.... Does NOT make it g00d and /or OK....
Yes, the plant can survive.... BUT the exposure to cold 60deg and below slows the growth rate of the plant by half..... 50deg and under the plant almost stops growing.... and goes into survival mode..... not really beneficial in the long term scope of flowing plants with there usual time frame.....remember even out-door's....ENVIRONMENT affects...EVERYthing

We plant around mid May around here, the days are long enough to keep the plant in veg...it will start flowering around mid August.

They will BE FINE.

I've tried to kill cannabis plants by leaving them outside at the end of December, where they were exposed to temperatures well below freezing (15*F), high winds, rain storms, snow, everything *but* warmth. Those fucking bitches LIVED through the whole winter AND spring, only died from lack of water the following June.

They will be fine.

However, in future, try to remember to keep the roots as insulated as possible if they're in pots. In-ground, no biggie, but potted plants root zone experiences conditions that in-ground plants don't (stabilization of soil moisture, exposed to soil food web of life, stable pH, stable temps). Going for larger pots, setting them into the ground, or using other measures to ensure stability in the root zone.

No, seed starts do not need to have supplemental light, extension of photoperiod, or interruption of photoperiod, because they have not SEXED. It's when cannabis has sexed that photoperiod plays such a crucial role.

With seeds, you just pop them, expose them to the natural day photoperiod, and go from there.

With clones, you need to prevent revegetative phase from beginning again. That is accomplished via supplemental lighting, extension of daylight photoperiod, or interruption of night time photoperiod.

I am at 34.4*N @ 2,500' elevation on the western scarp of the Sierra Nevada, I get started in March with my seed starts, they go out ASAP. If they get snowed on, they get snowed on (yes, even as wee seedlings with nary a node on them). So far I've never lost one from this kind of care. What it can impact (does) is final yield, but I'm just as interested in growing lines that tolerate or prefer my local conditions as I am in a final yield.

Your earliest date may vary, based on particulars. IMO, 14 hours daylight is a good rule-of-thumb.

Here's a latitude-specific day calculator, will show your earliest 14-hour day.

My first 14-hour day is May 13th - Mrs.Babba is right on the money.
